This task will require you to have access to a common, mundane object and a ruler that shows centimeters.
Find either 1) Can Opener, or 2) Toothbrush, or 3) Scissors, or 4) Lamp
Once you’ve found the object you’d like to work with, select the discussion group with that object’s name and enter. In the forum, you need to do the following:
1. Write a initial post between 100-150 words describing the object you have and writing the description to someone who has never seen such a thing.
2. In a follow-up post after several of your peers have posted an initial post, read through the initial posts and begin assigning descriptive details to the objects. Separate subjective descriptions such as “pretty” and “ugly” from objective descriptions that give details about the object (hint: use sub-headers for the subjective and objective separations).
3. In a final post, assemble the objective descriptions you found from reading your peers’ follow-up posts and then classify objective details. For example, for a staple remover: prongs, plastic finger grips, spring mechanism. And then arrange the various classes of detail in the most logical sequence for description. For example, for a staple remover: from finger grips to plastic exterior to hollow metal prongs, including pointed tips and arms, to the coil-spring extensor mechanism. In the final paragraph of this post answer the question, “What is the intended audience of this product description?” “Will the intended audience understand the function of the product because of the description?”
